After volunteering at the NICE mini conference in January, the students wanted to experience the larger event. They spent some time by volunteering and learning in the Makers Space area. Enjoyed experimenting with the wide variety of educational toys and helped demonstrate how to use them to the various teachers stopping by the room.
A major highlight was talking to Sylvia from http://sylviashow.com. A junior high student whose maker-centric YouTube channel has over 800,000 subscribers and fans that include President Obama and Adam Savage of Mythbusters fame.
